Big Man in a Small Town, OL Trey Dunmon

As the crow flies, Hawkinsville, GA is nearly smack-dab in the middle between Atlanta and Jacksonville. You don't often see major college prospects in towns like Hawkinsville, but this is a different town. Among its 3,280 residents is an athletic offensive lineman who has a 6 foot 3 ½ inch frame, a playing weight of 270 pounds, and a motor that propels that body to a 5.1 time in the 40. Add to that a bench press of 315 pounds and a squat of 500, and you have a major college line prospect.

One of the great things about growing up in a small town is that everyone knows everyone else. And, they want to know things like what college football team you are going to play for. "I get asked that all the time, and I really don't know," said Trey. Middle Georgia - - automatic Georgia fan - - right? Not the case with Trey. In fact, the Bulldogs were not to be found among his top five current favorites. When asked, Trey stated that "I am definitely not a Georgia person. I am not a big fan of theirs, and they are chock full of offensive lineman anyway." The lack of an in-state allegiance likely leaves the door open for some other team to steal one away. Trey has attended camp at Auburn, and last week attended camp at Florida State - - where "things went pretty good, the coaches were really interested."

Should they offer a scholarship, the Seminoles just might have the edge with Trey. "You know how everybody has a team that they liked ever since they were a little kid? Well, Florida State was that team for me." Nevertheless, Trey claims to not have a leader at this point, instead listing a top five of Florida, Florida State, Tennessee, Auburn, and either Nebraska or Ole Miss. He attended a spring practice at Tennessee, and is receiving recruiting contact from a number of teams, included among them Notre Dame, Louisville, Oklahoma, Georgia Tech, Tennessee-Chattanooga, and Central Florida.

According to Trey, he is qualified academically, and is looking forward to this upcoming season. He wants to earn All-State honors, having been named All-Region and All-Middle Georgia last year to go along with Honorable Mention All-State.
